My husband is a custom carpenter who can make amazing things and fix anything. Our girls are used to tools and hands-on projects…we recently found out how used to it!!
Our house does not have a door directly into the backyard so we either put the dog on a tie out in the front yard or we walk him around to the side of house to get him into fenced in yard.
This has always irritated my husband and I a bit but we just realized it has been bothering the girls too. When they found a piece of pallet my husband had used in a project and made a ladder for the dog so they could let him in and out of the house through the youngest daughter’s bedroom window.
They got the screw gun and even found screws to refurbish the pallet piece to make it more sturdy for the dog.
It’s not a bad system and only required supervision from me.
Yesterday, the 9-year-old decided the “ladder” needed some more work…I got a little more involved this time!!
